i wish every day could be like this


hello chère friends! i hope your week is going well and that life is taking it easy on you at the moment. they can’t all be great days but this one started very early and i was up for 3 hours before checking anything electronic! it meant sunrise, a long bike ride and yoga on the beach. yesterday an important lost receipt led to a full blown coma-ending blindness about the state of my files. suddenly all i want to do is be organized and not just at the end of the year. i spent all day yesterday on tedious book keeping.

anyway, the best part was that it gave me some free time and finally the chance to accept the honor of a blog award from my friend, petunia with out having internet guilt. soooo without further ado, i get to tag some for same honor! i just randomly chose a few blogs off the recent comments and i could go on and on! some are friends and others my first time visiting. i have to get back to micromanaging but i hope some new friends are made today!


the first picture and these shoes are from her blog. need i say more?


oh yeah, and you can fantasize about the real estate she finds…go back in the archives!


then there’s the talented lisa golightly who i met in san fran last week. her work is so beautiful. so is she! hey girl! can you believe i left the paper we bought on the plane?



i’m not a josephine lover per se but was glad to get to this new land



i mean, she had this shot too, come on…


oh and nicole was a new and exciting discovery. her portraits are magnificent!



another new friend with pretty things to say. and edward at the helm




oh and isa! great to meet you too, these photos are spectacular!



well this is zara home but it’s from her blog


another of my idols, vicki is coming out with a new book soon…



carolyn and i met in paris for some blogger fleamarketing between groups last year. we had so much fun! hang on there you little tomatopie!



and i guess it’s not hard to see why meeting samantha was wildly cool. check out Angry Women in Party Dresses



and of course a great big thank you to petunia for bestowing this just when i needed it, i was really feeling like the girl she featured below but thankfully now feel like the girl above. nothing’s changed but perspective so it wasn’t too hard! xoc

    Hi Claudia,

    I hate to say that I’m usually just a lurker, a sucker fish, a leach really. I love my blogs and appreciate the photos and information and chattiness in them, but never comment. I’m shy.

    But I sooooo love your blog and appreciate the time and energy you put into finding such delicious photos. I just had to tell ya. Thanks ever so.
